Hospitality Business Reporting
Do you know how much money you need to set up your business? How much will it cost you to run?
How many staff can you afford?
How much money will you need to cover all your costs?
How much would you need to make to earn the type of money you dream of?
If you don’t have clear answers to these questions before you start your business, problems can quickly arise. You’re working hard, but you don’t seem to be making any progress. There’s cash coming through the door, but sometimes you don’t have enough to cover your bills.
A common challenge we see is that many business owners are spending too much time working in their business, and not enough time on their business. This is even more prevalent in the hospitality industry. Without putting your head up to check on the health of your business, you have no way of knowing how your business is actually doing.
Accurate and up-to-date snapshots of business performance.
Where a good business turns into a great business is by continually measuring and analysing your business performance. This allows you to manage your business by making incremental changes to ensure you are on track to meet your goals. But reviewing performance can be difficult. You can’t simply rely on your bank balance, or only focus on sales or revenue. You need to look at all aspects of your business and understand the relationships between them and how they impact performance.
Further complicating this is the many systems that capture the data, with separate systems for banking, payroll, accounting, bookings and Point of Sale. We combine all the relevant information from your business systems for you and present it to you in a way that is easy for you to digest on the go. We will sit with you and talk through your business results and ensure you understand where you need to focus your energy and what changes need to be made.
